As for how I came to the conclusion that a God must be behind it...I never did. I'm an agnostic. I find the belief that all of this came just from nothing for nothing just as hard to believe that there is some bearded father figure keeping watch over us. I find it a nice ida, but my beliefs are more one of Deism. I don't believe the question should if there is a God, but more if there was one, would he really give a rats ass about it.

The answer is probably no.

Bugs in the system. Any programmer will tell you that the more lines you put in code, the more bugs are going to pop up. What you're doing is looking at one of those bugs, people bickering over a virgin birth and conflicting beliefs, and using it to conclude that there is no programmer. No, that's not good logic. All that does is disprove the existence of one certain God/Programmer. It doesn't disprove the idea of God entirely.

I believe it's Deism that holds the belief that the existence of a God is likely, but if he does, that he probably doesn't give a rats ass about us. It uses the nature of omnipotence/omniscience to come to the conclusion that a God with those traits, at worst, probably wouldn't even know he's created us. Think about it, do you care of the opinions of a prokaryote? Chances are you probably don't even know it's there until your kitchen starts to smell. It just leaves the question of whether or not this God meant to create us or not.

Imagine you're programming a portion of code that's supposed to do something simple...like add two numbers. You set it up where it takes in the two numbers, and then you write the code that adds them, and finally you write the line that displays it.

Evolution is the portion of code that adds the two numbers. Are YOU the one doing the adding? No, but you're the one who designed the code that does it. Now you have something set up where you only need the two numbers in order to come to the answer.

Now imagine that evolution is a million times more complicated than just adding two numbers......you make it where the program takes in something small and insignificant...like the readings on the mass/charge/energy of a proton, neutron, and electron, and what it spits out is matter, light, soil, water, fish, birds, people, emotion, happiness, love, rejection, loneliness, depression, alcoholism, and suicide.

And you'd still have us believe that this designer chose to impregnate a virgin, set up some fancy rules, and totally not be on the other team that says they impregnated their virgin and not yours.

Even if you had a designer god, it's still far from logical to jump to a god that actually cares about you (if that is even something you believe, my apologies if not).

It still didn't satisfy me though, it seems to me evolution is perfectly imaginable to happen without a god as well, and its more likely there was natural properties that set everything in motion than an omnipotent mind.

Wouldn't you admit that evolution could easily happen in a universe governed by natural properties inherent to our universe, and just out of curiosity, what made you come to the conclusion that a god must be behind it?

I'm guessing he means every generation or so he tweeks the design a bit, whether it's physical or not mentally and see how it goes.

If he created us in his own image does that mean god started out as an amoeba and continuously takes the form of his most evolved species?

how about a god who designed the rules to work so well at the beginning that he doesnt need to step in and intervene, knowing before anything happened exactly how it would turn out. being a creator could mean he set it in motion, without actually having to control the details.


I dont believe any of that but it seems possible if you want to believe in a god.
